Sometimes you come across something so unique and beautiful it is hard to put into words and you only hope the pictures will go some way in conveying the magnitude of this work of art. This is hallmarked and stamped in various places – please see close up photo. It is a Sheffield silver plate piece in the manner of Matthew Boulton.

The main central column has a main dish a top and three smaller dishes coming of the column. This stands on the silver plate and mirror base. To the side of the main piece are the two smaller dishes, also made from the finest crystal cut glass.

Adorned at various points around the bases of the three dishes and at other points are the gorgeous chubby cherubs in gold plate. Some of the cherubs are reclining in a more smoothly pose whilst others are waving their hands in a salutation.

The levels of craftsmanship and hours that goes into making something like this are outstanding. Not forgetting all the different type of materials and disciplines involved with this. The glass is hand cut and etched. Details like the ornate silver work with leaves and other designs and then of course the troupe of cute cherubs or putti. It is an amazing piece either decoratively or practically perhaps for serving dips or showcasing dried flowers. It all comes apart so is easy to ship and move around. We have never seen anything similar so hence it is highly collectable.

At Canonbury Antiques we carry a range of silver plate epergnes or centerpieces. These ornate and florid works of art are designed to go in the centre of a dining table as part of the dining arrangement and to serve condiments, sauces, exotic nuts, small food items or perhaps in a purely decorative function to showcase a floral arrangement. They will certainly add a certain oomph to any dinner party – and also look great at other times just as decorative pieces.

Working out of Sheffield – a city in the North of England – famous for steel on an industrial level and silver plate on a smaller scale, is where many of the silver plate techniques were first developed and mastered. The Elkington technique of electroplating surfaces also developed in England, specifically out of Birmingham in the Midlands.  George Richards Elkington worked in the science of electrometallurgy and took out various patents of his system of finishing objects in silver plate. Of course with aristocratic patrons this soon took off resulting in the plethora of designs and styles made.

Famous silver smiths working out of England in the 1800s include Matthew Boulton (working in a largely neoclassical style) and Thomas Pitt who was based in London. We have a range of silver plate epergnes so hopefully you can find one to suit your needs and tastes. Nothing beats a serving lovely sauces from these works of art during a high end dinner party and they really add some style to the occasion.

Please check out our video below showing how these look in their element – on a large walnut Victorian dining table all we need are some guests and fine wine:
